SNEAK PEEK: Mini Kaiju Cupcake Custom Blind Box Series Teasers

Teaser WIP image of the 5 pieces Jon Malmstedt is contributing to this series
We have a great project in the works in collaboration with Rampage Toys: a blind-box Mini Kaiju Cupcake series! Featuring 5 artists, this 25-piece series is based on the 2-inch Mini Kapukeeki Kaiju resin figure designed and casted by Jon Malmstedt of Rampage Toys

Each artist is contributing 5 hand-painted Mini Kaiju Cupcake figures. Blind boxes will cost $35 apiece and there will be a Golden Ticket randomly inserted into one of the boxes which will get the recipient a 5x7 inch original art piece by Rampage Toys.

Artist Roster:
Jon Malmstedt (Rampage Toys)
Justin Hillgrove (Imps and Monsters)
Nasty Neil (Wasted Talent)

Top picture is a WIP shot of Jon Malmstedt's pieces. More teasers to follow in upcoming days! 
Release date to be announced soon.
